Bouncer jailed for ‘disgraceful’ crime
6:30am Thursday 20th March 2014 in News
A BOUNCER who raped a woman in the strip club where he worked while she was being sick into a bucket has been jailed for eight years.
Ali Kacani, right, of Lidsey Road, Banbury, was yesterday found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of sexual assault carried out in the early hours of December 29 last year.
Michael Roques, prosecuting, told the jury during a seven-day trial at Oxford Crown Court that Kacani, 32, found the complainant in the toilets of the Venus nightclub in Banbury at around 5am after she had fallen asleep.
He said the woman, who had been sick after drinking too much alcohol, was taken into the closed Mirage nightclub next door and raped twice by the defendant as she was being sick into a bucket.
Passing sentence, Judge Mary Jane Mowat said: “It was a particularly disgraceful scenario for a rape – you treated this woman quite literally like a piece of meat.”
Kacani will also have to pay a £120 victims’ surcharge when released and will be permanently on the sex offenders’ register.
